That's not how the world works either.

Waat. There are democratic countries, with varying degrees of reliability. Hence...it exists thus it works.

I've yet to hear of 1 man who defeated an army by HIMSELF(not as in "he inspired others to fight and/or involved others"). Only in vidya games does the hero somehow take on an entire army and win.

(Freeman took on a trained military force AND a superior alien force and he was a freaking scientist)

Name at least one country with actual "democracy", where everyone can vote or participate.

Democracy has multiple definitions. Stop trying to squeeze the term into a mold that'd confirm your arguement. Ain't nobody thinking I'm talking about millions of people getting off their ass to vote for every single law. People have a hard time getting off their ass to vote once every 4 years...

Rambo-ing doesn't. Real life Rambos don't live long.

Direct democracy falls apart when you start getting into the hundreds of people, whereas countries are comprised of thousands, millions, or even billions.

It's also not the only kind of democracy.

Many republics - the most famous example being the US - have a system of representative democracy instead. Granted, it more or less runs on bullshit, but it's still possible for an individual voter to democratically influence laws, especially at the local/municipal level.

But people labeled "underage" may not vote.

You'll be able to vote for your favourite ancom candidate soon enough.

Once upon a time only wealthy men with land could vote. It's a slow process(though I don't know what effect it'd have in the US without lowering the age for office. No youngins really want to vote for some geezers that are a generation behind)

I didn't wanna post this meme in the other thread since it was in the emotional support forum, but that whole story reminded me of Naruto Shippuden's premise in a nutshell.
